SXSW: Vote on ideas for a better digital future

Posted: 02:03 PM ET

Three people with cult followings online have been asked to choose ideas they think will change the way the Web works. And each is competing for a $50,000 prize to get that idea up and running.

It is part of Pepsi’s Refresh Project, where the company is giving away $20 million to people with great ideas during 2010.

Here are the ideas. Let us know what you think. You can chime in with comments below, and vote for your favorite idea on Twitter, as part of the Pepsi campaign.

Foursquare meets Craigslist

Adam Ostrow, editor of the technology blog Mashable.com, is supporting Brian Milner who wants to build something to help people in need connect with people who can help (Foursquare meets Craiglist).

Stories of the homeless

Digital guru Gary Vaynerchuk is the founder of Wine Library TV. He is supporting Mark Horvath who runs InvisiblePeople.TV, an organization that shares the stories of the homeless throughout the U.S.

Virtual food bank

Melissa Garcia, also known as Consumer Queen, is a prominent mommy blogger. She is supporting Sandy Jenney who plans to use the $50,000 to build a virtual food bank where people can donate food online.

The voting ends midnight on Monday. Each of these influential online personalities is encouraging their community to vote via a hash tag: #RefreshMashable, #RefreshGary, #RefreshCQ. The hashtags will be tallied and a winner will be announced on Tuesday.

The virtual food bank would actually be to educate people to donate cash rather than food.
Instead of buying a $1 can of vegetables,....donate that $1 in cash and a food pantry can purchase 24 cans of vegetables from a food bank. So instead of 1 can....the pantry actually gets 24.
.54 will buy 12 jars of peanut butter from a food bank.
.90 will buy 24 cans of spaghetti sauce
.96 will buy 24 1# boxes of spaghetti.
So for $1.86 a food pantry can provide 24 spaghetti meals for families in need.
I would like to develop a virtual food bank that any organization can use for a food drive. For instance a school can have a food drive and plug in their school and what food pantry they would like their donations to go to. This virtual food bank would have a grocery store and virtual cart. So you put in your donation and that amount of virtual food is dumped in your cart for a visual of how much your money will actually buy people in need.
Thanks!
